Directors untraceable, cops freeze realty co ac
The economic offences wing (EOW), which is probing a Rs 7 crore cheating case against three directors of a construction firm, said that the suspects could not be traced.
A Santacruz resident, who had paid up Rs 7 crore in connection with the purchase of 22 flats in Navi Mumbai, has lodged a cheating complaint with the EOW. Three directors of Monarch Universal Group--Gopal Thakur, Hasmukh Thakur and Roshan Seth--besides real estate agent Kiran Perwani, who brokered the deal, had been booked in connection with the case.
“Their cellphones have been switched off and they are even not operating their cards for financial transactions. We have frozen the company's bank account and debit transactions,“ said a police officer.
The anticipatory bail plea of the three directors was rejected on April 6. “We have also got the call data record of the accused.They last showed up in Navi Mumbai on the day their bail petition was rejected,“ the officer added. An employee of Monarch Universal Group said the directors had switched off their phones.
